Perez is a patient pooch.

The 2½-year-old dog has resided at the Florence Area Humane Society in Florence, South Carolina, for more than 660 days, almost his whole life, waiting to be adopted. And he is still waiting.

The South Carolina shelter shared the canine's story on its Facebook page on Thursday, hoping to find the pup a home. In the post, Florence Area Humane Society explained the grim way Perez came under the organization's care.

"This is a summary of Perez's life so far... as a puppy he was thrown from a moving vehicle on Freedom Boulevard. He has been at the shelter ever since (660 days and nights). THAT has been poor Perez's life... abuse, neglect, trauma, and confinement. And THAT is a pattern we are all too familiar with. We must do better! Please help us turn things around for this sweet and loving boy and find him a caring home," the shelter wrote on social media.
